Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Another victory for the N.R.A.

Remember folks, guns don't kill people ....., people kill people! (After all, if we didn't have guns, we would have to stab them, or club them, like they did in the old days!)

A man who shot and killed a 13-year-old boy as he was stealing from an unlocked car was arrested but US prosecutors declined to press charges, police said.
Martinez Smith-Payne, who is black, was found unconscious and bleeding in a back alley when police were called about a shooting in St Louis, Missouri at 12:47 am Sunday. He died in hospital.
"Investigation revealed the victim, along with two other juveniles, was attempting to steal items from an unlocked parked vehicle when the suspect confronted them, then fired shots at the juveniles," St Louis police said in a statement.
The shooter, who was identified as a 60-year-old black man, was immediately taken into custody. He was released after prosecutors "refused" a police request to press charges, the statement said.
It was unclear if he was threatened by the teenagers prior to opening fire.
Police declined to provide further details about the incident.

Yup, a black killing another black's is O.K. (It thins the herd!) 

BUT!

Don't let 'em fuck with the white boys, folks!

"A student was arrested after allegedly threatening to kill 16 “white devils” at the University of Chicago Monday, prompting the institution to cancel all classes."

(Apparently those " white boys" don't have much of a sense of humour!)

--------------------------------------

 And if ya STILL don't believe me that people kill people, not guns, get a load of THIS story:  A baby was fatally shot when a shotgun belonging to his mother's boyfriend went off in their living room, police said.


Police said Henry W. Bartle, 18, had left the "shotgun laying on his lap with the muzzle pointed in the direction of the child" when he attempted to get up. The 12-gauge weapon fired as Bartle stood and the tot was struck in his upper body, according to police. (Bartle, who lives with the child's mother, had earlier cleaned and then loaded the shotgun, officials said.)

He has been charged with criminally negligent homicide.

(Now I have to admit that if there were no guns around to begin with, chances are that nobody would have clubbed the baby to death. The way I see it, anyway! -Ed.)

There are times when your humble reporter has second thoughts about some of the stuff I write about on these pages.

Image result for indian clipartOne of the best examples of this are some comments I made about the plight of Indigenous peoples here is Canada who live on Reserves up north and don't have clean drinking water or housing, and employment is always hovering around 50% ....., or more!

My solution to this dilemma was obvious, and rather bluntly stated!


MOVE! 

(For God's sake people in Newfoundland went all the way out to Alberta when there were no jobs at home, and if the Indians don't like it way up there in the frozen north, then they should come down here where there are jobs, and opportunities!)

For this, I was constantly being chastised for being too harsh, and even racist in my attitude, Well bunky, I am not the only one. (Even if some of these comments go well overboard and cross the line on what is marginal, and what is just plain wrong!)

Here's what I'm talking about!
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is temporarily suspending comments on its online stories about indigenous people, after its editors determined that too many comments were being posted that it deemed “off the mark” or “racist.”
In an online note to readers, the CBC’s acting director of digital news said that comments on those stories will be barred until editors can review moderation procedures.

“While there are a number of subjects and groups of people who seem to bring out higher-than-average numbers of worrisome comments, we find ourselves with a unique situation when it comes to indigenous-related stories,” wrote Brodie Fenlon.
“We’ve noticed over many months that these stories draw a disproportionate number of comments that cross the line and violate our guidelines. Some of the violations are obvious, some not so obvious; some comments are clearly hateful and vitriolic, some are simply ignorant. And some appear to be hate disguised as ignorance (i.e., racist sentiments expressed in benign language).”
 
Yup, that fine line between what is acceptable, and what is NOT, seems to be getting crossed on a regular basis lately. (The line between being a bigot, and a racist!)

What some people need to do is cool their jets a bit ...., or keep their comments to themselves! (I have to plead mea culpa here, because this is something that even I am guilty of at times! )
